Grooviest Program Ever*

*Until something better comes along

Emily noted that I hadn’t written anything in a while, so here you go πŸ™‚

I’m sure most people have, at one point or another, stumbled across one of the various satellite mapping sites where you can see your neighborhood from a 100 mile up perspective. Well, Google Earth takes this three or four steps forward. It is an interactive model of the *entire* earth in 3D utilizing satellite photos and terrain altitude data, and you can roam the earth freely – zooming in close enough to where you can see individual houses in some cases.

From the site:

– Fly from space to your neighborhood. Type in an address and zoom right in
– Search for schools, parks, restaurants, and hotels. Get driving directions.
– Tilt and rotate the view to see 3D terrain and buildings.
– Save and share your searches and favorites. Even add your own annotations.

My favorite spot so far is the Grand Canyon.

Check it out – it’s free!
